Father’s Day is right around the corner, and what better gift for a new dad than experiencing a 4D Ultrasound in Fargo from Blooming Baby Ultrasound HD! You’ll get to see close-up, detailed images of your little one, and receive a keepsake you’ll both treasure for years to come. 

To find out more about 4D Ultrasounds, we asked Stephanie Thom, owner of Blooming Baby Ultrasound HD, some questions!

What’s the difference between 3D, 4D, and HD?

We use 2D, 3D, and 4D/HD. The 2D ultrasound is the traditional, second dimensional black and white image. This is what you receive in the doctor’s office. 3D is going to be a more realistic picture, and more like a photograph. It tends to be more of a golden-colored image (verus black-and-white). 4D/HD is a real-time image of baby. You can see baby moving, yawning, suckling, opening eyes. It also allows us to record a clip and rewind to take multiple still images. blooming baby

What happens during the HD ultrasound?

The 4D/HD session will include images in 4D/HD as well as 2D images. The 4D packages are longer at 15-30 minutes long.

What do I get to take home with me?

Depending on the package, you will take home printed pictures and a link to your digital pictures/video clips. And with our Complete Package you will have a video of your session!

Does this replace the Ultrasound I get at my doctor’s office?

This does NOT take the place of any prenatal care. We are strictly elective just for fun!

How far along should I be to get a 3D/4D Ultrasound?

3D imaging can be done at any time its really up to preference. We have provided 2D and 4D images at multiple stages on our website to give you a better idea of what to expect.

Is this type of ultrasound safe? Are there any risks?

There is no evidence showing ultrasound is harmful to a growing baby or mother at any stage of pregnancy. Ultrasound is simply sound waves; there is no radiation being transmitted. blooming baby fargo

Can you tell the sex of the baby?

Yes, We offer Blood Gender tests effective from 7 weeks on, as well as Ultrasound at 16 weeks gestation. 

What kind of equipment do you use to perform the 4D Ultrasounds?

4D/HD is performed using the same machine as our 2D & 3D. It’s simply a different setting. 

Is this covered by insurance?

We are self-pay because we are NON-Diagnostic and will not provide any medical information. We are strictly just for fun. 

Can I bring my family and friends?

You can bring any and everyone you want! We love having big groups, families, and especially siblings all come to enjoy the fun.  

Do I need an appointment to get an ultrasound?

We are currently by appointment only. You can make appointments on our website or by calling us!

What a fun, unique experience that makes for great gifting! For more information on these unique 4D Ultrasounds in Fargo, please contact Blooming Baby Ultrasound using the links below!
